Memories.......



On this shelf are some things that bring back memories.A picture of my Mother and myself taken on Easter about 25 years ago. I still had dark hair and my Mom was blond. Both of us have white hair now!! Also a picture of me when I was probably 8 or 9, posing in one of those photo booths from long ago. It is amazing that those pictures have held up so well considering the cost of them. I got the picture in the back ground at a garage sale. I liked the sentiment. " God Tucks Mothers In At Night." How many times have we tucked our children into bed but is nice to know that we are looked after, too. I recently purchased the Scrabble letters and stand at a local craft/antique store. I think it looks right at home right here with these pictures.

Wonderful memories. That is cute using the stand and letters from a Scrabble game. Also I like your new header picture too.

Hi Sandy, I really like your little display of the precious things that you love. I also like the scrabble letters, it adds the perfect touch to the grouping. It is so nice to look back on our lives and to cherish those memories.
